Hartlepool snooker club blaze probed by firefighters

  • 3-10-2014

Investigations are continuing into the cause of a blaze which destroyed the roof of a Teesside snooker club.

Crews from Cleveland Fire Brigade were called to Green Street in Hartlepool shortly before 03:30 GMT.

The two-story building was left "structurally unsound" with two gable ends in danger of collapse, a spokesman said.

A structural engineer has been on site to assess the damage and whether or not the building needs to be demolished.

John Feeney, group manager at Cleveland Fire Brigade, said: "There was no sign of forced entry and investigations are ongoing.

"At its peak, we had five appliances there and around 25 firefighters. The roof burned away quite quickly."

Part of the A689 westbound is expected to remain closed for most of the day, Mr Feeney added.
